UN­CHARTED WA­TERS: RO­MANCE, AD­VEN­TURE, AND AD­VO­CACY ON THE GREAT LAKES

SAIL - - Cruising Undersail -

By Mary McKSch­midt (14 Karat Books, $15) Mary McKSch­midt’s new mem­oir tells the hon­est and im­pact­ful story of find­ing pur­pose through sail­ing and ad­vo­cacy. As a young suc­cess­ful busi­ness­woman, she was taught to sail by her soon-to-be-hus­band, Ru­bin. Not only that, but while she fell in love with the some­times-treach­er­ous wa­ters of Lake Michi­gan, McKSch­midt also be­gan to un­der­stand the en­vi­ron­men­tal per­ils fac­ing the Great Lakes. De­cid­ing to speak out, she traded in her busi­ness suit for foul­weather gear and be­gan an ad­vo­cacy cam­paign. Told as a se­ries of rich vi­gnettes span­ning her adult life, McKSch­midt’s story is an in­spir­ing re­minder that one per­son with a goal and the tenac­ity to fol­low through can make a dif­fer­ence. –LM
